I'm not a pro at this by any means, but my 2cents are:
Don't know how much money means to you, but I can't see the cost of the 1st
2 compressors. I think they are more of a professional compressor than a
hobbiests. $1.5K is way more than I can afford for a compressor!
The Sears, I'd pass on, even though the price is right. I don't like
the oil less
units. They are very noisy. I don't know how long they last, but
they do offer
one hell-of-a bang for your buck.
That leaves the HF units. Again looking at price and performance the HF.
93274 unit looks pretty nice. It delivers close to the same cfm but for a
lot less money. I don't see you needing much more than what this unit
Personally, I'd go for the H.F. 93274 unit, unless someone else can
give a better
